This Sunday October 13th is World Thrombosis Day

October 11, 2019

 

Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot, known as a thrombus, within a blood vessel. Once formed, a clot can slow or block normal blood flow, and even break loose and travel to an organ. A clot that travels through the circulation is called an embolism. Each year, 1 in 4 people worldwide die from conditions caused by thrombosis. It is the often preventable underlying pathology of heart attack, thromboembolic stroke, and venous thromboembolism (VTE), the top three cardiovascular killers.

 

World Thrombosis Day is this Sunday, October 13th. It’s a day to increase global awareness of thrombosis, including its causes, risk factors, symptoms, prevention and treatment. To support this important cause, MEDUCOM participated in an Official Dog Walk with some of our favourite four-legged friends.
